Diggers are enormously useful on construction sites and can be used to clear large amounts of debris in a short space of time. They can also help move sand and other materials from one area to another, also much more swiftly than might otherwise be the case. While construction sites do pose risks, these are largely professionally managed by those in charge of the sites. It is rare that anyone would have to start looking for digger injury compensation advice.
However, if you have had an injury that was caused by a digger, you may be asking yourself whether it was down to negligence that it happened at all. While some people in this situation make complete recoveries from their injuries, this is not always true. The nature of a digger – large, cumbersome and very heavy – means the potential is there for those nearby to suffer serious injuries or worse.
The potential for some serious injuries
It is horrible to imagine how a digger might cause damage to a human being. We are certainly no match for this type of vehicle, especially as it has the potential to cause multiple injuries in a very short space of time. These might include broken bones, head injuries and various other injuries caused by the crushing force of the digger.
It is understandable then that lives can change as the result of this sort of accident. If you’ve been through a similar experience, you may have been unable to go back to work. You may now have injuries that mean you will never get back to the way you were before. It’s no wonder you might be worrying about your financial future as well as your health, especially if you cannot work any more.
